The Lord Jesus said: I will build my ekklesia (Matt 16:18). It has been a conspiracy of satanic proportion where Christians have been tricked into thinking what the Lord wants is “church”. One Ekklesia is not condemning the churches of today, but it's bringing a completely new perspective relating to the One Body of believers God is building.The time has come for a much-overdue work on ecclesiology. By tackling biblical passages concerning God’s eternal purpose through illuminating exegesis of Scriptures, One Ekklesia unveils a fresh, inspiring, and motivating vision. Simultaneously, a radical approach is revealed to make this vision practical from day to day for every single believer no matter their station in life.One Ekklesia is not about how to improve your church, leave your church, or to start a better church. Rather, its vision and practice is to fulfill the Lord’s prayer for His people (whether attending church or not) to be ONE, so the world will believe. It is a practical oneness of diverse believers impacting the world. This will ignite the holy fire of God, spreading uncontrollably...the next and final revival. Each chapter of One Ekklesia is impactful - you will not want to pause this book! Those who have reviewed its contents are not only numerous - they are entrenched in the evangelization of the world in vibrant evangelical commitment to the Eternal Life, Truth of Scripture, and the Glory of His Service.This is a clarion call for radical Christianity which turned the world upside down in the first century! This is NOT a text on ecumenism where truth is compromised for a superficial unity - no, this is the work of the Spirit in the hearts and lives of those committed to following the Lamb of God and being the answer to our Lord’s prayer in John 17: That they all may be one...that the world may be believe the Father sent the Son! 1.

The Dead-Living Church re-defines the concept of church (the true Ekklesia), her global positioning and her responsibilities according to the original intent of God. Jesus' declaration in Matthew 16, 'I will build my church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it' far outweighs the theological assumptions and religious beliefs about what church is supposed to be. This book is not a product of professionalism; it is a prophetic release by the Spirit of the living God. The Church is not a denominational gathering of religious people, but the Ekklesia, the people called for an assignment, the assembly of legislating on behalf of God on earth. This book will take you through a journey. Its intent assuredly will awaken your spirit man to experience a paradigm shift from "Churchianity" to that which is God's original intention. 1.

After almost five decades of service to the King and His Domain, I have concluded that the institutionally controlled religious system has hijacked most of Christendom. The “religion of Christianity” has been established on a multi-layered foundation with a construct incapable of fulfilling the greater Kingdom purpose of Yahweh. The reality of foundation separation and structural damage has reached a critical mass that could result in catastrophic failure and implosion. What I am presently seeing and hearing is the reality of a faulty foundation and the absence of Holy Spirit which has resulted in men building something that is both unstable, insecure, and unsustainable. “Without transformation and conformation, there will be no reformation.”If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?" (Psalms 11:3 NASB) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry D. Peterson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/142132/bk_acx0_142132_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
This book reveals what heaven expects from the church. It reveals what Jesus meant by "I will build my church". It is not a critique but a standard of spiritual measurement and divine alignment as to the definition of a true church. The true church (The Ekklesia) is not a denominational gathering of any kind, whether orthodox, charismatic, or Pentecostal. The true church is one that has placed primacy on building the dispensational temple (the man) only according to God's pattern. This book will be a great eye opener for you. You will no longer strive in the flesh anymore after going through this book. The issues of competition, comparison, sense of inferiority, and superiority complex, which are some of the distractions and strategies of the enemy, will be exposed. Your work and ministry with God will never remain the same. You can't listen to this book and still retain your old mentality and operating system. Whatever you are building for the Lord from now on shall be to the Lord's glory and according to his specifications. Personal agendas will be given up. Deeper truths and insights are made available in this book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bolton Marsh. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/051249/bk_acx0_051249_sample.mp3.

In this study, Soeng Yu Li explores Paul's understanding of the charismata in 1 Corinthians 12-14 and why the apostle focuses on the charisma of prophecy in 1 Corinthians 14. After demonstrating that the semantic relationship between charismata and pneumatika is to be understood as meronymy, the author then offers an exegesis of 1 Corinthians 12-14 from a meronymic point of view. In 1 Corinthians 12-14, Paul teaches about the topic pneumatika, the things that characterize the life of the pneumatikoi. Paul teaches the Corinthians that as pneumatikoi, both their behaviour and their practice of their apportioned charismata must be characterized by agape. Only in this way can they build up the ekklesia in the here and now towards the promised eschatological future. To illustrate his teaching, Paul uses prophecy as the paradigm of ta charismata ta meizona for the gathered ekklesia living in the future-oriented present.
